Notes on the Geography of Guyana: Guyana: Central Georgetown: Photo 11
The grander building is the Public Buildings, now the Parliament Building, designed by Joseph Hadfield and completed in 1834. It's probably no big surprise that it rests on a foundation of logs, but it might come as a small shock to learn that the building itself is made of wood and is only stuccoed to resemble stone. Photos from the 1960s show the walls and dome in white, with the columns and balconies in a dark color, perhaps the same brown surviving on the balconies.
